Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was compelled to read this book after being flabbergasted that some webcam girls were making more money than lawyers. I wanted to find out why decent sex-workers were prohibitively expensive for many men, and what factors go into the "market price" of sex-workers in general. The book is an entertaining read, but there were some aspects that I didn't care for. The author claims that the price of sex-workers is at the lowest rate in human history. I don't have a problem with this claim per se, but I would like to see more evidence. He rightly points out that many radical feminist anti-prostitution advocates jump to wild conclusions about sex trafficking, inflating the number of trafficking victims by dishonestly broadening the semantic range of the definition of "trafficking" and "abuse" and paint all men as villains and deny that women can have any agency. One thing that I disagree with however is that he says what is called "slavery" in these instances is actually involuntary servitude as if that automatically makes it permissible.

He builds arguments from what he calls "Wild Ass Guesses (WAGs)" which is fine on account of the fact that this is a non-scholarly work, but some of them clearly don't make sense. For example, he automatically assumes that there will be at least 10 male customers for any one single sex-worker (i.e. 2,000 workers = 20,000 customers) when constructing hypothetical scenarios.

Towards the end of the book, he devolves into socially conservative moralizing despite the fact that he identifies as a Libertarian.
